Dave and Renee keep it real at this restaurant. Food is high quality and plated well. Excellent atmosphere conducive to South American love and romance too. Service with a smile and a hug that goes as far as the food. A long way!

West Point Grey
West Point Grey is one of the city’s oldest
neighbourhoods, especially known for its easygoing and
admired beachfronts. Locals crowd the Spanish Banks
and Jericho Beach, especially in the summer, where a
sprawling view of the English Bay awaits. The central
village is an oasis of sovereign shops, many of them
in local operation for years. The neighbourhood has a
more personal feeling to it, and can be a wonderful
